  1. This summer, I've made it a goal of mine to clean out and organize my stuff both physical and digital. As I came across my bookmarks, I was a little bit disheartened. Visibly, I had tried to organize sites that I found, but over time, that organization slowly slipped away. Was it worth trying to visit every site and restructure my folder system, only to watch it slip again? I've decided against continuing to use Chrome's built in bookmark manager. It was becoming a mess and I felt like I would work better with visual bookmarks. After all, I use this for my "new tab" page. Why not try and find something similar that could hold a ton of different sites? From what I've deduced, here's the pros and cons of using Evernote for bookmark management. Pros: Same amount of clicks to add a bookmark. One click to press the clipper, one click to confirm. I can tag my bookmarks instead of trying to go through a convoluted folder system. I can add personal notes about the website and my use of it. I can see all of my bookmarks in a thumbnail view. When I search for a bookmark, it searches through all of the text on the home page. When I view a bookmark within EN, I can click any links on the home page. Bookmarks sync to EN Android (it's actually puzzling why Chrome doesn't do this for the stock Android browser) If I wanted to, I could create completely offline versions of a website. There are easier ways to do this, but it's an interesting possibility nonetheless. Cons: Thumbnails aren't consistently visible on Android. I have to use yet another program. I long for integration. Not all sites clip to EN correctly. I can't default a view for a particular notebook. Every time I go to my Bookmarks notebook, I have to manually select Thumbnail view. I can't say I've officially decided to use Evernote to keep track of all of my bookmarks (I'm still in an unsure testing phase as you can see above). Has anyone else tried to do this and pulled it off effectively? Does anyone recommend something that maybe I haven't come across?
  2. Hi, i have a problem i can not find a solution. In the organization of my knowledges (and only knowledges, no stuff like "to do"), i need a way of sorting my stuff with lots of levels, i mean knowledge A 1. a.first second b. c. 2.knowledge B ETC. Notebooks NOR tags allow me to set up my stuff with lots of levels as i need : both only accept 2 levels, but i need something deeper. Hope i'am understandable :-) Any ideas/tips how i could build something like that? any help appreciated. Jérôme.
  3. So here's my workflow pattern. 1. Scan with s1300 snapscan. 2. OCR 3. Copy file from my "scan" folder to evernote 4. Move the file(s) into cabinet on organiser software. While this is fine, I feel that there's possibly a quicker way of improving my workflow? I want to OCR everything, but maybe I can get the scans into evernote quicker than copying from "scan" folder on desktop? But I also want a copy keep on my desktop. Any suggestions folks? Thanks.
  4. Since I'm new to this digital method of storage via evernote I thought I'd let people know how I'm going about my organising! After a lot of research here and excellent advice I started out by using tags/keywords along with notebooks. Overkill I know, but after only a week at using this system it's not that hard to change over. So that's what I've done. Instead of tagging everything, I just use the popular method of Date, keyword keyword, keyword in the title. Already I can see the big advantage of using simple "intitle:" searches and not bothering about loads of tags. In saying that, I still have loads of pointless tags which I'll get around to deleting as I clean up. Notebooks are also plentiful in my evernote account which I will soon narrow down to just 3/4 instead of the current 24!!! I'm using a system from now on which has been talked about a lot both here and on the net. I've a "!inbox" notebook where all new notes are sent to be default. After I process/title/date the notes I'm current sending them into a "@notes" notebook which is like a general archive notebook for all my processed notes. I also have a "!Need to do" notebook which I've changed the created date to 31/12/2012 so that it stays up on top of all the notes. This way I can use this note as a todo list or for stuff that needs action soon. So in time I aim to have just the following notebooks: 1. !inbox - processing all new notes 2. @notes - general archive for processed notes 3. !need to do - for todo lists/tasks needing action Originally I created notebooks for receipts, statements, money owed to me, books, internet websites, and appointments among others. I still have these notebooks but once I'm finished my massive batch of scanning materials I'll put the notes in these folders into the "@notes" notebook. I do have one worry about using this system in that I might forget what I actually have in storage. I know it will be easy to find the required notes but I'm just anxious in case I may forget what I'm filed away simply because I don't see the relevant notebook on the left hand side of evernote. I'd appreciate any thoughts or tips for my above system. Thanks.
  5. I have found an absolutely wonderful use of Evernote in conjunction with my e-mail. Granted, it may only apply to people who use (or used) e-mail the way I did.... I found that I was using e-mail for three different things: Sending and receiving messages (duh) Keeping a to-do list -- that's what my inbox did An information-storage system -- I saved messages that contained some information I wanted to keep for future reference (e.g., an account number, an address, etc.) I found that #1 and #2 worked just fine for me; I'm good about keeping my inbox down to size. But I was also using my e-mail apps to store lots and lots of notes containing some small bit of info I might need sometime -- account or login info, people's contact data, various tidbits of information, even jokes. Even with a decent folder structure, though, e-mail apps really aren't made for storing information you need to get at. That's not what e-mail does. I could save each of those messages as a separate file ("Dad's_Dropbox_login.txt"), but that would get really messy. Enter Evernote, which I had been using on and off since it first debuted -- the days when it saved things as just a single long stream of text. I went through my entire folder structure -- everything from contacts to account info and receipts to... well, whatever. Unless I needed to save the message itself (in a CYA sorta way), I moved them into Evernote. Soon enough my Evernote folder structure approximated my (now defunct) e-mail folder structure. Now my e-mail has a handful of small folders, and Evernote is loaded with all the stuff I might need. Even better, it's so much easier to add stuff -- Web clipping or uploading or whatever. No more e-mailing things to myself. And -- just in case Evernote isn't the 100-year company it wants to be -- I can archive all my notes as well. My wife has a monster e-mail account, with literally thousands of messages she's saving for various reasons. So I get a kick whenever she sees my handful of folders with a few dozen messages. (Of course, my Evernote folders are bulging, but that's what it's for.) Anyway, I wanted to share how I found EN to be a nice way to clear out my e-mail, make all those little snippets easy to find (and update), and give me something to show off to others: "Wow, you have a lot of messages in your inbox there. You ever think of maybe getting a note-taking app?"
  6. Ok, so i've created a load of notes either from my phone or from the web which I stick in my "!inbox" notebook to sort out later. So when I go through my !inbox nb and title/tag the notes, where do I put them them? I'd like to have my inbox empty and fresh but I don't have specific notebooks for all the different notes I've created and I don't want to go creating notebooks for everything? I've 20 notebooks already and I'll be getting rid of most of them over time. I'd just like to hear what ye folk have to suggest regarding how ye free up your inbox notebook so that its not full of new notes after you tag them. Thanks!
  7. I will soon be organising my mothers business papers by means of a snapscan scanner and the wonderful Evernote. Basically I will be providing her with a digital copy of all her important receipts, tax sheets and everything relating to the paperwork side of her business. Normally the kitchen table is clustered with sheets of papers, bills and the usual stuff found in an unorganised environment. My question is simple. What's the best way to go about organising the above? Should I use tags or just titles? This will be my first time to use Evernote in this way so I want to get it right rather than going back and editing stuff later. I look forward to hearing your opinions. Thanks.
  8. Recently started using evernote after a long time of wondering exactly how it could benefit me. Well after about a week of playing around with it and adding notes etc, I quickly realised that this is the beast I needed to sort out my paper trail and also to possibly sort out my mums business in terms of organising her paperwork. So I went ahead a purchased the premium account today to give me maximum features. I also went ahead and bought a S1300 snapscan scanner as it had excellent reviews both here and elsewhere. I've two initial questions. 1. I intend to chop up a few books and scan them into evernote as pds's. Is it easy to create pdf's in this way, so that I can then transfer them onto my sony ereader in a format that will be easily readable on the ereader? 2. The maximum file size for one single note is 50mb. How can one go about decreasing the file size when creating pdf's as ebooks? Also, is there any way of decreasing the size of already made pdf's? For instance I've a few books in pdf format already but then are 80 - 100mb in size and therefore I can't transfer into evernote. I look forward to been part of this forum as its been a great source of help and info for me already. Thanks in advance for any help ye can provide.
  9. Tags are very useful ways of sorting information in a notebook. It would be useful to be able to change their order in the sidebar
  10. Please excuse me if this has been discussed in the many debates of tags vs notebooks. If it has please direct me to the exact post as I can't find one. The reason I don't like tags is the way they are set up in iPad and iPhone makes them to me very user unfriendly. In other words, on EN in mac, you can click on a note and it shows the corresponding tags. With the both iOS devices, you don't had this. Instead you have to use the "Tag" option which list far to many tags and you can only click on one vs narrowing it down. Again, if this has been discussed please show me and if I am missing something would love to hear. I am trying to find a way to use tags but just having trouble with the workflow on the iOS devices.
  11. Hi there, My organization would like to produce a commemorative book for our upcoming 100th anniversary. I am contemplating on opening a group account for the purpose of collaborating on this project. If one is created, I see how group members are invited and accepted, however; I have some questions: What is the annual cost for a group account? (Couldn't find this on your website) How best would you advise organizing Evernote for a project of this nature? Notebooks or tags? We know that we want to organize the research by decade and within each decade to have folders or notebooks or tags for people, places and things. I don't understand what a "stack" is? Do we have to be concerned by the amount of data we would accumulate for a project of this nature? What are the risks in loosing or having members inadvertently delete notebooks or notes. Does anyone have examples of a project of this nature using Evernote? Thanks.
  12. So, I want to continue using Evernote for everything in my life, which includes my vinyl LP collection. Now, I do use discogs.com for cataloguing my collection, but, they don't have everything I have. Yes, I could submit missing titles to them, but it takes time, so I'll save that for rainy days. This brings me back to my vinyl collection. What's the best way to enter it into Evernote? The jackets are too big for my scanner. Should I just take a picture of the front and back of each jacket and then merge relevant notes? I don't think it would take too long, with a family assistant, to run through my entire collection and take a photo of each. Thoughts?
  13. Go to all the restaurant websites in your town Download all their menus (most are in PDF nowadays) to your special Evernote folder When you do, Evernote will import them If they don't have PDF menus, just clip the menu portion of their site Apply tags or put in special folders if needed Now, whenever you're hungry, just go to Evernote and type "pizza" or "sushi" or even be specific like "artichoke" or "barbacoa", and see what restaurant menu comes up! Now you know where to eat tonight, or any night! No more searching restaurants in your area and wasting time going from site to site!
  14. Evernote just got real! Well, I've been using it for some time, but never fully until this year. I still have MANY, MANY STACKS of old papers (mine, and my ancestors') to scan in, but, for now... I'm simply scanning in daily documents. Items that come to me in the mail or items I acquire in my daily dealings. All of it gets scanned. I figure if I truly don't need it, I can delete it later on. So, we recently bought a house. The previous owner, a friend of mine, sent me an email this afternoon asking me if I had received my tax assessment for this year yet. Well, hooray for me (and Evernote)! I had not only received it in the mail a few weeks ago, but I scanned it that day! So, I hopped into Evernote, did a quick tag search, and there it was! I grabbed the link for sharing, replied to his email so he could view it, and there you go! He now is giving me some tips and tricks for dealing with the local property tax assessments. Without Evernote, I would have been searching PILES OF PAPERS (because I'm a horribly DISORGANIZED person) and there would have been a chance that I wouldn't have found the document at all. Thanks again Evernote, you rock!
  15. I have been trying to find the Evernote button I can add to my Postbox so that I can send mails to EN for later. I have right clicked on the Postbox toolbar to customize but it is not there. Any help on this would be great.
  16. Really want to use Evernote in the best way possible to organize a lot of my life. I feel that I really use it like a hodgepodge mess, rather than a organized machine. Trying to look at different ways to keep all my clients information organized and structured. The two ways I see to do this, is either have a notebook associated with each client, OR, have a tag associated with each client. Don't know which one other's have used to do this. I have to add data to my clients information every year, and keep up to date with it. This all needs to be easily accessible and highly organized. Just wondering what some best practices are that are out there. Thanks
  17. (first post!) Over the years, my children have made hundreds and hundreds of drawings for my wife and I. We always treasure them, but, have found it very difficult to keep track of them. Eventually, they pile up on the desk, get stuffed in a drawer, or lost and thrown away. Not anymore! I now scan them into Evernote for permanent keeping! As the day, or week comes to a close, I take any drawings my children have made, scan them into Evernote, tag them or file them into the appropriate folder, and then I can put it in a box, or even throw it away if I need to. When they're older, they'll thank me for it. I wish I could see drawings I made when I was young.
  18. There are tons and tons of attributes and depending on what we're interested in - any attribute of an object is a potential way to group notes... It's practically impossible to define all attributes whenever you process notes in Evernote. And you never really know how you're going to search for the note later and in what case it might be useful and what topic it might be related to. I personally have a lot of thoughts on this topic but would like to know what do you think. How do you deal with this? How many notes do you keep? How many tags do you use? The more the better? the less the better? What about adding new tags/attributes/any metadata to a new group of notes but not adding those new tags to all your previously created relevant notes because it's just not practical when you have thousands of notes. What are your thoughts about the best way to use metadata and store and retrieve personal information overall? (Not technically but in general idea.) yeah, I know, it's a very broad question I think it's still a fairly new thing for most people to try and capture all meaningful information in their life so we're all pioneers in this in a way. do you know any good books, articles on this topic? I'm not interested in newbie/ tips&tricks kind of stuff though but interested in more of a holistic methodology/concepts/models, e.g. Gtd.
  19. Hi All....Sorry for a different post....Wasnt sure whether to add to my other post which was about a different issue or start a new one....So thought it might be better to have a different one with a better topic.... I have many Notebooks & many tags.....I am trying to see what setup would be better... I have attached 2 screenshots of my notebooks and tags... I have a lot of manuals that I store as I am an engineer.... I am trying to figure out whether I need so many notebooks or so many tags... As an example Notebook - Manuals HP Servers has 17 Notes which have PDF's of the manual. I then have tags for each model so that I can search for the manual in question when I am out and about. Another example, I am an avid gamer & snapshot a lot of website /forum pastes related to different gaming topics...So I have notebooks for each game, but then have tags also for specific subjects within each game. Looking for the experience of other forum buddies to give me some tidy up experience. I am planning on storing all my receipts in future to evernote...either scanning a paper receipt of emailing evernote from the electronic receipt. Any help would be appreciated Cheers John
  20. Hi All....Looking for some guidance....I am a server hardware engineer....On a daily basis I have to complete a time sheet that shows what I have done for that day....The Timesheet is called DAR & is a spreadsheet. however I create a note for each day to list what I have done...Example below SL123456 Diags Replace HDD - 150399-001 Diags Test Build Wipe Device SL987654 Diags Order 146GB HDD - 406474-001 SL656768 Diags Order System Board That's my example I am looking for a way to organise these, make them easy to import some of the data into the DAR Spreadsheet. Also, I would like to be able to easily search the Asset ID(SL123456) to be able to check if I have previously worked on it & search the part number(150399-001) for the same reason...See how many I have ordered Any guidance in this area would be appreciated. I am new & hoping to try and use Evernote more
  21. What are some of the most popular notebooks or tags you have used and seen in your EN experience? I am looking to use tagging(or using notebooks) as a way or organizing my to do list and other organizational things. I have a 1/hot, 2/warm, 3/cold notebooks where I qualify how important each to do is. Looking for other tips to add to my foundation. Thoughts I set up an ifttt task so that any gmail I get that I "star" goes directly to my Inbox in EN. This will help me not miss or forget emails. Of course I can also use the email to Evernote feature as well, but this one is quicker for some things. Anyone have any other cool ifttt tasks they set up to go with EN? I also created a separate notebook just for business cards with certain tags on each business card (a picture is included) to describe what organization each person is a part of. Right now, I also have each business card tagged with "business card" but I may change that. Any tips on this? Thanks.
  22. I recently posted about how to use Evernote during the college search and admissions process over at my blog ChapBits. You can check it out here: http://blog.chapmanc...search-process/ Please feel free to add any other ways to use Evernote regarding the college planning process.

  23. I'm making this thread to work out my 'project' of building Evernote that is most efficient to me. Hoping this might be some help to other beginners who have run in to similar blockades of not able to organize your notes which hinders productivity. I've attached a screen of my current Evernote schema where I've setup a hierarchical tag structure that I worked through in a previous thread. Now this structure worked for while and I had high hopes for it but after a while i started finding it difficult on finding this that needed attention now. This caused me to revisit square one.
  24. There should be some way to divide notebooks into chapters or sort their contents by tab because, while I use search, there are times where I have to study for tests with un specified content. I it would be nice if i could sort the notes by chapter in the notebook pane or use the tags to mark chapters which could be sorted out in the search pane. (And yes i know there are alredy tags I just want to be able to sort by tag)
  25. An interesting article in HBR, mostly focusing on the future of organization. The gist:
